In the present days, living standards have improved more so the demand for health care and entertainment has also increased. We can see a lot of music and sports playgrounds. However, do you notice whether music and sports are a natural duo?
It is not difficult for you to realize that at stadiums, sports festivals or international sports competitions such as SEA Games, World Cup, NBA and more. Even this is also shown in smaller scales such as gym, yoga, or speakers of aerobic sister parks and even home gyms, etc. Where there is almost no music available probably just the dojo!
Music and sports have appeared for a long time in the form of pre-hunting ceremonies of ancient tribes. Musical forms at that time were very primitive like drums, gongs and more. Later, when they formed antagonistic subjects, they also had musical drums before they started. If you watch historical documentaries, you will recognize them immediately.
Music promotes the human spirit. Vibrant rock music or electronic music makes the “warriors” more enthusiastic. Thus, it helps them achieve better results when competing. Just like drumming in battle, today’s music on the stadiums also signaling fierce fights going on.
When we practice, relaxing music makes our mind calm and suitable for yoga and strong music is suitable for strong sports such as jogging, gym and more. This is a psychological therapy that helps us forget repetitive exercises that are depressing as well as avoid negative thoughts and help us focus more deeply.
In addition, music in sports practice balances emotions and synchronizes movement thanks to the rhythm as well. Another benefit is that music stimulates areas of the brain that control muscles. This is essential for sports practice because we have to use the whole body to perform the coordinated movement. Not only that, music is also a source of motivation because of the strong ability to reduce stress and mental intensity. If you are tired of jogging every day, why not try to play a vibrant song, you will run a lot better.
